In presenting the first Creole translation of fifty Mother Goose rhymes we hope that children in Mauritius will find great enjoyment in learning these rhymes by heart and that, with them, “Morisien” speaking parents will be proud to pass on their beautiful mother tongue to the next generation.

Bel bala laba

Bel bala laba:
Sat ti pe dans sega,
Vas ti fransi lor lalinn.
Toutou ti riye
Get tamasa la;
Lerla lasiet-kouyer fer mofinn.

Hey, diddle, diddle

Hey, diddle, diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
